June 8, 2016 (San Diego) - Could the Padres finally get a sweep today? Read another exciting tale about a Padres game to find out! Julio Tehran started on the mound for the Braves against Drew Pomeranz for San Diego.
The Braves started the scoring again with Freddie Freeman’s sacrifice fly in the first, scoring Ender Inciarte and Atlanta took a 1-0 lead. Nick Markakis singled, scoring Chase D’Arnaud and the Braves went up 2-0.
In the fourth, Teheran singled and scored Daniel Castro and the Braves took a 3-0 lead.
In the Padres’ half of the fourth, they cut the lead to two with Wil Myers’ solo home run, breaking up Teheran’s no-hit bid, but the Braves still led 3-1.
In the sixth, D’Arnaud doubled and scored Inciarte and the Braves went up 4-1.
The Padres cut the lead in half with another Myers solo homer in their half of the sixth and the Braves led 4-2. This is Myers’ first multi-home run game since April 19, 2014. But it wouldn't be enough; the Padres forget their brooms again and lose to the Braves 4-2.
The Padres have an off day tomorrow before they start a three-game weekend series against the Colorado Rockies in Denver. Friday’s first pitch is at 5:40 p.m.
